Marine environments and particularly salt water are tough on lighting
Kemp, TX (Vocus) December 17, 2009
Larson Electronics’ magnalight.com announced additions to its line of LED spreader lights for boats and vehicles and equipment. Ranging from 10 watts to 280 watts, the new LED10W series of LED spreader lights features ten watt LED packages in single row arrays numbering 1 to 28 LEDs. Equipped with 35 degree optics, the LED10W-10R-F LED spreader light delivers 9000 lumens in a low profile frame that measures 20 inches long, 2.75 inches tall and 2 inches deep. The lightweight aluminum chassis is machined from a single piece of aluminum to maintain its IP67 rating and eliminating the issues associated with the degradation of gaskets over time. Available in black, white or even custom colors, the hard coated LED spreader lights mount via hinge style mounting brackets. The fixture is mounted perpendicular or parallel to the floor with 45 degrees of freedom. Trunnion mount (or u-bracket) style mounts are available as well for the LED10W series of spreader lights.
“Marine environments and particularly salt water are tough on lighting,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics’ magnalight.com. “That is why solid state LED lighting is a perfect fit for those harsh environments. Our waterproof LED lights equip boats, offshore rigs and a whole range of equipment that operates solely around saltwater marine environments. To conserve space, we offer higher wattage LED packages in low profile, water tight housings with stainless steel mounting hardware. We have LED spreader light models ranging from 900 lumens to 25,000 lumens. These lights are an ideal alternative to common incandescent and in some cases, High Intensity Discharge (HID) and High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lighting on boats, equipment and offshore rigs. They run on low voltage, from 9-32 volts DC, and deliver stronger, whiter light output with 50,000 hours average lifespan and dramatically lower amp draw than standard lighting sources. This means five and half years of continuous operation while conserving battery capacity. With solid state technology and proper design, the LED10W series of LED spreader lights (flood lights) eliminates issues associated with vibration.”
“We have also added some other smaller, durable LED lighting options for the marine market, including LED strip light LEDST-12 for rail mounting, the LEDSM-30 courtesy lighting and a variety of surface mount down lighting, including the LEDCL-280 LED task light. We also offer Pulse Width Modulator controllers to enable operators to dim all of our LED lights,” Rob concluded.
